There was an IMINT guy, a SIGINT guy, and a MASINT guy sitting together in a bar.
(For those of you that are not familiar with this intelligence disciplines, IMINT is imagery intelligence, SIGINT is signals intelligence, and MASINT is measurements and signatures intelligence.)
They were having a chat, and they noticed a couple of young ladies sitting on the other side of the room in a corner and having a very heated discussion.
The guys looked at each other and said: "It would be really nice if we knew what those ladies are saying. We're all intelligence types, so we should be able to figure this out."
The IMINT guy pulls out a big telescope and says: "I can do it. I've got this new imaging system with a new focal-point array that I can update very rapidly. I can look at a video, read their lips, and figure out what they're saying."
He sets it up, gets it calibrated, and gets it in focus. But every time it's properly focused, the ladies turn and he can't see their lips.
He mutters something about terrain masking and says, "I can't do it."
The SIGINT guy says, "I've got it! I've got his new joint SIGINT avionics family.
It's the latest digital system for the Department of Defense."
He pulls it out and says, "I've got the whole spectrum digitized. I can focus in on what they're saying and figure out what they're discussing."
He tunes it up and at first gets a conversation over on the other side of the bar, a couple of gentlemen discussing business. He keeps tuning and tuning but only gets an FM radio station with loud rock-and-roll stuff.
He can't hear what the ladies are saying, and he mutters something about co-channel interference and says, "I can't do it."
The MASINT guy says, "I've got it! I've got this great new technique where I use lasers to illuminate the subjects, and the with a hyper-spectral detector I can figure out the acoustic modulation of the salinity content of the sweat on their brow, and by that I can figure out what are they're discussing."
He gets it all set up and tuned in and data comes spewing out of the system; tons and tons of data. But he doesn't seem to be getting any signatures, and he mutters something about aerosol scattering in the cigarette smoke and he admits, "I can't do it."
So they had pretty much given up on figuring out what the young ladies were discussing, when the ladies come over and say: "We understand you were trying to figure out what we were discussing."
The Intel guys look at each other, sorely puzzled, and the ladies say, "What we really ended up discussing was whether or not you guys would ever figure out what we were talking about."
The IMINT guy says: "Well, yeah, we were. But how did you know that?"
And one of the young ladies says, "Well, we just tipped the bartender ten bucks and he told us. It' called HUMINT, human intelligence."

Remember this?

You are a child of the universe
No less than the trees and the stars
And you have a right to be here

And whether or not it is clear to you
No doubt the universe is unfolding as it should

Therefore, be at peace with God
Whatever you conceive him to be
And whatever your labors and aspirations
In the noisy confusion of life
Keep peace with your soul

I try to be, I strive to be
Oh I wish to be happy


As far as possible, without surrender
Be on good terms with all persons
Speak your truth quietly and clearly
And listen to the dull and ignorant
They too have their story

Avoid loud and aggressive persons
They are vexatious to the spirit

If you compare yourself with others
You may become vain or bitter
For always there will be greater and lesser persons than yourself

Enjoy your achievements as well as your plans
Keep interested in your career however humble it is
A real possession in the changing fortune of time

I try to be, I strive to be
Oh I wish to be happy

Be yourself
Especially do not feign affection
Neither be cynical about love

Take kindly the council of the years
Gracefully surrendering the things of youth
Nurture strength of spirit to shield you in sudden misfortune

But do not distress yourself with imaginings
Many fears are born of fatigue and loneliness
Beyond a wholesome discipline
Be gentle to yourself

With all its sham, drudgery and broken dreams
It is still a beautiful world

I try to be, I strive to be
Oh I wish to be happy


Go placidly amid the noise and the haste
And remember what peace there maybe in the silence


we are not alone...

or maybe we are ....
